G. Appendix (not counted in the 1500-word total)
In an Appendix create an annotated bibliography with at least 8 resources (these can be the citations from within your paper and/or additional outside sources). Selected resources should either further your knowledge related to your critiqued paper or be directly related to your proposed study. The purpose of this annotated bibliography is to have you locate and record citations to various documents that will be useful when contributing to your group research project.
Make sure to set aside adequate time to complete this part of the writing process. You will need to read/skim selected documents and not just use the abstracts.
Follow this format when completing your annotated bibliography:
Citation
Summary
Reflective notes
Pages to note
This is where you will provide the full APA citation (often in Google scholar or within the data base this is provided- double check it’s correct).
Brief summary of the article, book, document, etc.
Provide some kind of notes on how this might be used, how it relates to your topic, commentary or critiques, etc. This is your place to provide notes on the value of this article.
Did you read particular passages/ pages that are of value to your paper? Notate them here so you can go back.
~ USE THE WORD COUNT FOR EACH SECTION EXACTLY AS  MUCH AS POSSIBLE.
